Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Baby Ezra, The Christening and The Kind Tailor


--by RoseMarie, posted Sep 16, 2016
This is baby Ezra. He is getting christened on Sunday. I know he will look beautiful on the day but he won't be the only well turned out guy in the family. His great grandfather is in a nursing home and has Alzheimers. Grandad is getting out to attend the church christening.

Nanny has ordered him a new suit. Even though grandad will only be at the church service his loyal wife who is 88 years of age insists he is well groomed. She has got a tailor to come to the nursing home and measure grandad, he will be suited and booted, no stone unturned.

Today she told me that the tailor called. Being in the nursing home and seeing the patients left a lasting impression on him. He has only charged my mother in law 50% of the full cost, what a kind man. He also told her she was a credit to herself, something I fully endorse. He has left his shop number with her and if ever she needs a lift to the nursing home, she is to telephone his shop and a member of staff will take her. What a kind man! He is so touched by what he sees in the nursing home that he is making a donation to it.

Ezra may be the man of the moment at  his christening but his great grandfather will give him a run for his money.
